Music booklets and rehearsal track links will be sent out approximately 5-6 weeks before the course, to give you a chance to get to grips with the music.

The Junior orchestra for players grade 2 – 4 standard, conducted by MfE’s Instrumental Animateur Josh Goodman, will enjoy a range of music that will introduce young instrumentalists to playing in an ensemble. The Senior orchestra, for players grade 5+ standard, will be directed by Richard Howarth, conductor of MfE’s East Midlands Youth String Orchestra.
